DINOSAURS RULE AT NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM’S DINO FEST
WEEKEND FESTIVAL CELEBRATES SCIENCE AND POP CULTURE OF DINOSAURS
Saturday, September 23 and Sunday, September 24, 2017
This fall, the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County (NHMLA) brings the world of dinosaurs to life with the second annual Dino Fest—a weekend festival celebrating dinosaurs big, small, and everything in between. This signature festival will give dinosaur enthusiasts of all ages an inside look at the work of paleontologists, and how artists and filmmakers use science to create pop culture beasts.
With talks, performances, tours, hands-on activities, and special specimens on view, Dino Fest aims to engage guests through scientific discovery and contemporary interpretations. World-renowned paleontologists will be on hand, and notable partner organizations will share their dino expertise at hands-on booths. The weekend will showcase dinosaur-related activities and experts “In the Field,” “In the Lab,” “In the Collections,” and “In Pop Culture.”
Activities include: Interactive Dig Pits, where visitors can try their hand at digging for fossils, Meet and greet Buddy the Dinosaur from PBS’s Dinosaur Train, Dinosaur Encounters puppet show and MUCH MORE!
Dino Fest Admission is $12 for adults, $9 for students and seniors, $5 for children.
Museum Members and children ages 2 and under are free.
